Treating compromised newborns demands the best training

While most newborns transition to extrauterine life easily, some require assistance and others require extensive intervention.

SimNewB® provides the opportunity for healthcare providers and learners to practice effective resuscitation skills of a full term neonate focusing on the first 10 minutes of a newborn’s life. It allows the NICU team to respond to clinical interventions that reflect real-life events through the use of simulation and pre-programmed scenarios.    


Partnering to improve neonatal outcomes

Developed in collaboration with the Academy of Pediatrics SimNewB is equipped with essential airway, breathing and cardiac features, to help address critical skills development.

The SimNewB simulator focuses on team training for critical problems in the delivery room and can prepare for these unexpected, high-risk event. Available with a wide range of Technical and Educational Services as well as validated simulation content, SimNewB presents a complete training solution for newborns.


Capitalizing on our strengths

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program as defined by the AAP incorporates a multifaceted approach to learning. Laerdal is pleased to collaborate with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) on educational tools that support the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). By collaborating on the development of coordinated educational solutions we extend learning impact and support our mission to help save newborn lives.”


Easy operation, tailored to meet your needs

Whether using the SimPad Plus System or LLEAP PC software to run the SimNewB simulator, the software is easy and efficient to use for scenario based education. The interactive manikin gives immediate feedback to interventions and adjusts to changing parameters during the scenario, allowing learners to think critically and determine the course of treatment.


With LLEAP operation:

The event log is synchronised with video which provides immediate, detailed feedback on performance for debrief. This optimises simulation as an educational tool.

With SimPad PLUS System:

Instructors are mobile and SimPad PLUS provides optimal data capture for debriefing making training more clinically relevant.
